Most people feel that it would be right and good and normal to have sex with just about anyone they are attracted to, but it's not. Read your Bible. You are supposed to confine that activity to your spouse.
And yet, there is a consistent culture today that says, "If it feels good, do it." That pretty much teaches a lifestyle of instant gratification, the idea that if you are attracted to that man or woman at the bar, a hookup is A-OK, and that kind of lifestyle is perfectly fine.
There are plenty of folks who live that way and are unrepentant about it. They're living in sin as much as any of the people you mention. They have the same issue.
Pretty sure Adam and Eve weren't married either
So, for one to be correct, how would one know it?

Maybe God isn't the problem, it's the religions you're espousing that are.
I know for peoples own cultures that their religions are part of the identity the choose to foster for themselves. But there's no more proof the Abrahamic religions are more real then Hinduism or the religions of the Native Americans or any others for that matter. It's all something someone else said or wrote. that you choose to believe in. Maybe the western religions just aren't as in know as they claim to be.
